Hurricane Odile Update: Emergency Declaration Issued as Storm Bears Down on Los Cabos – weather.com
The latest on impacts from Hurricane Odile, which strengthened to a Category 3 hurricane on Sunday.
Good video and stills of enormous waves in Cabo. The weather here remains calm. It’s dark now, so hard to see the sky. No rain, Only a slight breeze. The main force is expected in the morning.
Sitting in our cement-block house, listening to Charlie chat with Ben, Blue, and Ethan via Skype, it’s easy to forget how good we have it, and how so many people here are at risk – those living in corrugated metal and cardboard structures in the colonias (shanty towns) outside the city.
I tried to find some photos to share – curious that none exist. I’ll see if I can address the deficiency of documentation of the poor later in our trip. Charlie and I have an open invitation to volunteer in a children’s center in one of the colonias.
